Environment File Settings

The Abaqus environment settings allow you to control various aspects of an Abaqus job's execution. For example, you can

  • “Tune” Abaqus to improve its performance by changing memory-related parameters.

  • Control where and how scratch files are written.

  • Provide default values for job parameters that would otherwise have to be given on the command line.
